The field of hand surgery deals with both surgical and non-surgical treatment of conditions and problems that may take place in the hand or upper extremity including injury and infection.
Hip replacement is a surgical procedure in which the hip joint is replaced by a prosthetic implant. Hip replacement surgery can be performed as a total replacement or a hemi (half) replacement.
Knee replacement, or knee arthroplasty, is a surgical procedure to replace the weight-bearing surfaces of the knee joint to relieve pain and disability. It is most commonly performed for osteoarthritis.
Auckland Orthopaedics was set up with the belief that patients should understand not just what is happening to their bodies, but to also have the ability to take a leading role in their own health care.
This website is designed to help people understand their condition. It is regularly updated and has many links to prestigious academic organisations such as the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons.
Before an appropriate treatment can be instigated, first and most importantly, one must make the correct diagnosis. Often this can be achieved by simply taking a history and doing an examination.
Please ask your GP to send a referral to me, I work very hard to see people within two weeks of being referred, if you are happy to travel around Auckland I can usually see you within one week. Feel free to contact us.
